  1. This book/run is amazing! The use of speech, or the lack thereof, in this book is amazing. Clint and Kate feel like old friends that you share a story with in this series. A++

  2. I feel like every now and then there is a critically acclaimed book that I simply “don’t get.” And this is one of them. Now, don’t get me wrong, it was fine. I’d give it about a 6/10 or so. Not bad at all. But I feel like I completely missed what the big deal is. I think I would have liked it better if the individual issues were connected in a stronger fashion. The first three issues more or less operate as independent stories. And they are fine stand alone stories. But as someone who hasn’t read much Hawkeye I would have preferred if they were a little more closely knit. The next two issues are stronger as they are linked. I will say that the last issue was by far the best. It was rock solid and really had a lot of heart and character. While I didn’t love it, I realize I’m in the minority. I feel like the worst case is that you’ll enjoy it but won’t love it. Kind of like me.

Fantastic Four: Full Circle Review

The Fantastic Four find themselves with no choice but to journey into the Negative Zone, an alien universe composed entirely of anti-matter, risking not just their own lives but the fate of the cosmos! Fantastic Four: Full Circle is the first longform work written and illustrated by acclaimed artist Alex Ross, who revisits a classic Stan Lee–Jack Kirby story from the 1960s and introduces the storyline for a new generation of readers. With bold, vivid colors and his trademark visual storytelling, Ross takes Marvel’s first team of super heroes to places only he can illustrate. The book also features a special poster jacket, with the front flap unfolding to reveal an all-new fully painted origin story of the Fantastic Four.

Did-You-Hear-What-Eddie-Gein-Done-Cropped 16x9
Award Winner


Did You Hear What Eddie Gein Done? is an in-depth exploration of the Gein family and what led to the creation of the necrophile who haunted the dreams of 1950s America and inspired such films as Psycho, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and The Silence of the Lambs. Painstakingly researched and illustrated, Schechter and Powell’s true crime graphic novel takes the Gein story out of the realms of exploitation and gives the reader a fact-based dramatization of these tragic, psychotic and heartbreaking events. Because, in this case, the truth needs no embellishment to be horrifying.
